Check tire pressure light came on. Turned off valve stem cap on wheel and part of the valve fell off in my hand.
$140 later and some running around I have a new sensor installed on the wheel. This also happened to me on our 07 Cherokee.
I took off all 4 caps and slathered on anti- seize compound. The dealer had 6 sensors in stock and he told me that they sell a lot of them.
The stem seems to be made out of cheap white metal, corrodes easily and has no strength.

My experience from 2 vehicles is that they still seize no matter what the caps are made of. This last one on the RR just fell off in my hand. I really had hardly applied any pressure, and it was plastic.
